Sustainable Agriculture
Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center Inc.

Founded by renowned farmer and author Bill Best, the Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center aims to demonstrate to the people of the region that farmers do have viable economic opportunities when they diversify and utilize the whole farm, including woodlots. Products this region can produce can compete with large-scale farms on the basis of quality. The heirloom market is a flower in the bud stage, just waiting to blossom. The center uses skills and information base (developed over many decades) to bring to the forefront the importance of quality heirloom fruits and vegetables. It is their hope that the Center will go far toward making mountain agriculture sustainable.

They are a “growers only” market, which means if a farmer sells it, he or she raised it! Also available are prepared foods like bread, canned vegetables and jams. Local artisans make the market complete and sell only unique, hand crafted artwork. Come and check out what the Berea Farmer’s Market has to offer!
